Dash Pad Covers

I have a 1978 Ford F-100 that I bought from the original owner. It's a very straight truck, but it has plenty of cosmetics to be done. I have done four trucks in the last year (most GMC/Chevy. Not much for Fords). I couldn't turn this one down because the price was right and the body is super straight, with need of paint. I order a lot of stuff from LMC and have good results. Here in the desert heat takes it toll on vinyl. This one isn't too bad, but the dash and seat covers need to be replaced. I usually have an interior shop do the seats and carpet. I'm curious if anyone has had any experience with "Dash Pad Covers"? I'm also curious about seat upholstery kits. My dash is in good shape but has cracks in it. If you've used one, how does it fit? How about seat covers? If the foam in the seats is in good shape can they look good with these seat kits? What about molded carpet? Obviously I'm trying to save some $$$$$ here.

Thanks for your help!

the dash pad covers are OK if installed correctly. my kids car during college had one,done right. it was still looking good when she sold the car.
quality seats covers over good foam base will be fine. again, installation is the key.
i hope this helps.
